In celebrating her 50th anniversary as a solo recording artist and a career that spans over 60 years as one of the most recognized names and voices, the Reigning Queen of Gospel Shirley Caesar stands tall and committed to her journey as a humanitarian, entrepreneur and internationally-renowned gospel singer, songwriter, author and pastor. With more than 40 recorded albums to date, 11 GRAMMY® Awards, 14 Stellar Awards, 18 Dove Awards, and induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Shirley Caesar is enjoying the results of the labor. Her famed hits include: “No Charge,” “Hold My Mule,” “Jesus I Love Calling Your Name,” “I Remember Mama,” “He’s Working It Out For You.” Her new album “Fill This House” includes songs such as “It’s Alright, It’s Ok”(featuring Anthony Hamilton), and “Mother Emanuel,” and was released by the label Light Records/Entertainment One on June 3, 2016.

The Durham, NC native began her career recording at the age of 13 as “Baby Shirley.” When gospel legend and leader of the Caravans Albertina Walker became aware of the electrifying singer and performer as a college student, and asked her to join, Caesar halted her studies to perform with the Chicago-based group for eight years.
Caesar officially went solo in 1966 and became a legendary mainstay when her gospel version of the number one country hit “No Charge” crossed over to the R&B and pop charts in 1975.

She has performed for numerous world leaders including every U.S. President since Jimmy Carter and Nelson Mandela, and performed on Broadway, film and TV. Beyond her musical ministry, Caesar has remained deeply committed in serving the Durham and Raleigh, NC communities, as pastor of Mt. Calvary Word of Faith Church in Raleigh, NC for over 20 years. She has been offering community assistance to those in need through her Shirley Caesar Outreach Ministries for over 40 years, and served on the Durham City Council for four years between1987-1991.
